Recovering compensation after you've been hurt in a car accident should be simple. The insurance company investigates the accident. The other driver is determined to be at fault. The insurance company approves your claim and compensates you for the damages you have suffered. Getting compensation is always more complicated than that, however.
Drivers who cause accidents typically deny doing anything wrong. Insurance companies aren't much help, because they are mostly concerned with protecting their bottom line. They try to keep payouts low in order to keep their profits high. They have lawyers who look for ways to pay you as little as possible.
That's why you need an experienced attorney in your corner. Our firm is very familiar with the tactics insurance companies use to avoid their responsibility of paying fair compensation. We fight back to hold negligent drivers accountable and help you recover the financial compensation you need and deserve.
The experience that gets results
We've been helping car accident victims in Peru and throughout Illinois for decades. Our legal team investigates your accident to find out what really happened. We gather evidence and review documentation such as accident reports and medical records. We also identify and interview witnesses. If needed, we consult accident reconstruction experts.
Our attorneys know how to build strong cases that the insurance companies must take seriously. When they see that we are committed to helping clients get the best possible outcome, they often agree to talk about a settlement. We're not interested in making a quick deal that helps the insurance company save money.
Any resolution of your case must be one that meets your needs. This includes compensation for all medical expenses related to your injury, both now and in the future. It includes compensation for any lost wages you suffered while you couldn't work. We may also seek compensation for other damages, such as pain and suffering.
If the insurance company is not willing to negotiate, we'll be ready to fight them in court. Our firm has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for clients through negotiated settlements and jury verdicts. We are dedicated to helping you get the compensation you need to recover from your injuries as much as possible and move forward.
If you were hurt in a car accident in Peru, it's important to talk to an attorney as soon as possible to protect your rights. In general, you have two years from the date of your accident to take legal action. Building a strong case can take months. Over time, evidence can be lost or destroyed, and the memories of witnesses can fade.
